A tapir fan sent me this from one of the islands off of Italy - I think it was Corsica. It stands nearly 1 1/2 inches tall. I named the file "metal," but now I think it's plaster. It has a teeny spot off the paint on the back of one forefoot, and the chip is white. It's a replica of the "Golden Tapir Award" given in Italy by a TV station for people who have done stupid things. Not very nice for the tapirs!!! This is the keychain size. I have photos somewhere of the award. Photo by Sheryl Todd, April 2002.
